Understood, DJ!
I have volunteered to be a Ride Guide during the festival so that those from 'away' can see some of the less traveled roads and scenery without getting lost. But really, how can one get lost on an island, HA!
You and your friends will recognize me by my bike. Look for a black '81 Interstate with 'JamesGang' on the trunk. Step right up and introduce yourselves.

Life is like a roller coaster, full of ups and down\'s.
Most people just lay on the tracks, I prefer to ride my bike!

The count down has begun with 5 days to the start of the Bike Fest.
Every available room in Sydney has been booked for the entire weekend. However, anywhere on the island is no more than 2 hours from Sydney so there are still plenty of rooms to be had.
Storm the Fortress of Louisbourg has almost 200 registered out of an allowed 300. It costs $20 per person to register and includes a commemorative patch for your jacket or vest.

I am hoping to meet some of you guys and gals over the weekend. Look for an '81 Interstate with 'JamesGang' on the trunk

The festival is well underway and there are a lot of bikes from 'away' in Sydney. The weather is perfect with sun and cloud mixed and moderate temperatures in the low 20's. Did the run to Louisbourg today with a group of fifty riders for the Crab Festival. Fresh crab caught in the morning for all to enjoy, what a feed!!
Live music all day and tonight, not to mention the stunt riders and burn out pit.
Can you tell I'm having a great time?

Glad you are having fun. Bill, Lothar and Calvin from Sussex NB are there. They stayed in Port Hawkesbury Friday Night and headed there Saturday. They are staying near there at Calvin's cottage and are heading back late Sunday or Monday.

Have fun. weather reports look awesome!!

TO JAMESGANG, or any other folks up your way who may know:
From New Hampshire and since wife/ yours truly are about to celebrate our 50th Anniv. soon, was pondering possible trip to Atlantic Canada. Then heard the ship out of Portland, ME[Prince of Fundy, The CAT, or whatever it was called]is no longer running. Is this fact? If yes; BUMMER!

I heard that the ferry would not be back up and running this year because of cut backs.
You can still enjoy the ride through Atlantic Canada. I live in Moncton, NB and am approx 9 hours from my cousins in Worcester MA.

If you are coming this way, in Bangor get off the I-95 and take route 9 to Calais ME/St Stephen NB border. A great scenic road.
I can give you awesome routes through New Brunswick and into PEI and Nova Scotia. Just send me a PM.
